Is Holy Spirit Important?

“ . . . And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.” Psalm 51:11b

These are some of the words that David wrote in Psalm 51 when he was pouring out his heart to God after being confronted by his sin with Bathsheba and killing her husband, Uriah. At this time in his life, David was well established in his kingdom; his family was taken care of, his military conquests had given him big respect among the surrounding nations and his life was generally smooth. Maybe because there was an absence of crisis or because he wasn’t at war, maybe that’s how he was distracted with Bathsheba’s beauty and his subsequent downward-spiral choices.

The Nots

Does it seem like we’ve drastically shifted into summer? Here in Denver, we are in the midst of having a change in temperature, kids getting out of school and vacation stuff starting to get into our summer schedules. I’ve been thinking about all of these transitions. And for me, it feels like a sudden lurch into summer with dramatic temperature warming, longer days because of daylight savings, kids doing summer jobs and my total favorite, porch time!

Kids and Parents

Being a kid can have lots of great things along with some not so bueno experiences. To that end, I remember from my childhood, enjoying long bike rides in the Summer. I also recall throwing up on my friend’s arm in first grade, which stigmatized me for some of the years in elementary school.

Compassion > Judgment

I recently read the story in the Bible (1 Samuel 1-2) about a priest, Eli, who saw a woman, Hannah, in the temple whom he thought was drunk. He confronted her, and she explained to him that she wasn’t drunk but rather pouring out her heart to God in petition and great anguish. After her explanation, Eli told Hannah to go in peace, and he hoped that God would grant her petitions.

What Are You Looking For?: #Relationships

Join me as I continue my series on What Are You Looking For? I just want to encourage you to seek Jesus in every relationship you have, whether its a friendship, spouse, sibling, or even a coworker.

Navigating Pain

Someone once told me that pain is a good thing because it makes us aware. I didn’t really like that observation because I think pain is bad, almost always. However, they explained that pain could kind of be like a stoplight, raising our awareness so that we don’t continue in the same path, helping us to avoid collisions and bad stuff. Pain can also tell us that something is hurtful, something we should consider avoiding, something that could be wrong in our bodies or a situation.

What Are You Looking For?: #Pursuit

Join me as I continue my series on What Are You Looking For? Today’s episode is on pursuit. I want to encourage you to seek Jesus first to find what you are looking for!

Jesus is our Prince of Peace

Inside Job

I think the term “inside job” is interesting to consider in relation to what is happening in our interior life. This is worth consideration because not everything we exhibit externally reflects what we’re thinking about or what’s happening in our souls. To this end, I think it’s important to talk about the “Inside Job.” It’s also helpful to think about our interior so that we don’t get stuck in the bait and react trap. This happens when someone “pushes our buttons,” and we almost mindlessly react.

What Are You Looking For: #Fulfillment

Join me for my new series on What Are You Looking For! Are you looking for affirmation? Are you looking for fulfillment? Consider what you are looking for and identify what you truly desire. When we go after Jesus as our ultimate desire we have stability and peace in our hearts because He is our prince of peace.

Routines and Rhythms

“Show me your habits, and I’ll predict your success!” I’ve often thought about these words in light of my habits, which can be positive or negative. Since I want to have success in my life, it becomes important to consider my habits and things that I do with repetition. There are endless examples of people who continually practice, integrate daily habits, maintain steady routines, and capitalize on their natural rhythms to cultivate specific successes.
